I speak with anger for a damn good reason. One of the perks (or hindrances) of being young is that when we feel something, we say it.

I saw videos of Palestinians yelling 'god is great' etc. in their streets as a result of the slaughter of thousand(s) of nonmilitant civilians. They believe that America and the spread of Democracy is the end of their world. They have faith their god is right. You people, although you are a good deal more intelligent and peaceful than them, have faith in your god. Who is right? Surely you both can't be right. All of you and them have faith. No clear-cut and fruitful response has ever been given in this forum or in any other discussion that I am aware of; the only usual response is useless rhetoric which sidesteps the issue.

I openly condemn the US's actions in many places around the world, including much of the Middle East. I just as openly condemn the actions of these zealots (I don't care if they are behind it or not, although the evidence seems to point to bin Laden, who HAS DECLARED A JIHAD AGAINST THE US) take after all of these innocent people have died.

What I said earlier was not intended as a 'low blow,' but as a wake-up call. Hello! All these conflicting religions not all can be right. Fanatics and zealots who have no regard for their own lives, let alone the lives of others, believe they are going to meet Allah in paradise or heaven or whatever.
